You first need to grant them the necessary permissions (read/start/stop/pause, RTOP in subinacl.exe), either through a group policy or through subinacl.exe
Check here for details:

Download details: SubInACL (SubInACL.exe)

In addition, you need the following for remote access:

I have granted the appropriate permissions using SubInACL for the services themselves, but the user still cannot connect to the services using the mmc console remotely.

The last link you provided describes using sc.exe, but I want the user to be able to use the MMC console. Am I missing something?

You need to run the command described in the 907460 article *once* on the server that hosts the service(s) you want to grant remote access to.
